Don’t wait for an MRI scan that could take weeks or even months. Schedule your own appointment, without needing a referral from your doctor, to get your scan completed within a week and reviewed by the country’s top orthopedic surgeons.
Up to 18 weeks.
That's how long some patients have to wait for an MRI scan in the UK.
While some patients may receive their scans in as little as 3 weeks, even that is too long to wait.
While some injuries are unavoidable, what is avoidable is having them become worse while waiting for your diagnosis and treatment.
It shouldn't take so long to get the diagnostic scans you need, and it doesn't have to.
The MSK Doctors clinic provides a unique combination of fast access to diagnostics, top musculoskeletal specialists, and innovative technology that is not available anywhere else in Lincolnshire County. You can even use their self-referral program to schedule your own MRI scan, without requiring a referral from another doctor.

The MSK Doctors clinic uses an Open MRI Scanner and computer robotic vision center in Lincolnshire to help you receive a diagnosis for back pain, sports injuries, and other musculoskeletal issues, without having to wait for an appointment with the overburdened NHS. If you already know what body part you need to have scanned, you can book an MRI within one week, or schedule a virtual pre-MRI consultation with the medical team for more information.
The Open MRI Scanner used at the clinic offers you several advantages over traditional scanners, including the option to take Dynamic Motion MRI Scans. Using the motion scanning technique, you can have the affected area scanned while it is moving, which can provide the consultant radiologists with more in-depth information about your injury.
All patients will have their diagnostic tests assessed by top UK Certified Harley Street Specialist Musculoskeletal Consultant Radiologists, with the clinic not using reporting Radiographers. They also offer more in-depth information to patients than traditional clinics, and you can book an appointment to review your scans slide-by-slide with a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon.
Unlike a traditional MRI, the Open MRI Scanner has no sides, allowing you to scan injured body parts in positions that would not be possible using standard diagnostic machines. The open design has also been useful for patients who suffer from claustrophobia, or who have concerns about fitting the affected body part into a normal MRI.
A spokesperson for the clinic said, “There is no need for a GP or medical consultant referral. You can easily refer yourself for an MRI scan via our online system. If you know what you want, simply tell us about which part of the body you want scanned. Answer some safety questions and book online the time and date that works for you.”
